How Much would the Royal Yacht Cost? And Who would build it? The question of whether the British Royal Family should have a Royal Yacht has recently come to light again, as Tory MPs suggest that state lottery money should be used to fund the project. Who could build such a yacht though? Who could design it? And most particularly...How Much would it cost? This video takes a look at those questions, and tries to answer them. If you are considering buying or selling a yacht, please feel free to contact me at any time at email@example.com
Dunhill "Royal Yacht," blended by the Scandinavian Tobacco Group is a Virginia mixture to which "a unique flavor is added." That "unique flavor" is plums. Fairly high in nicotine, this seems to be a blend that elicits strong reactions. Many of Bradley's favorite tobaccos are Dunhill blends. Will "Royal Yacht" join their ranks? Find out! From the tin: "A unique smoking mixture. Exceedingly mellow blend with a grand rich flavour." Thanks for watching!

The Royal Yacht Britannia is the last in a long line of royal vessels. Here we take a look back at the history of this magnificent yacht and discuss its past roles, present status as a museum ship, royal family connections and the potential for a new royal yacht.
Docked in Leith near Edinburgh (scotland), the Royal Yacht Britannia was the ship the Queen and Royal Family used to tour the world from 1953 to 1997. In 44 years of service it did almost 1,000 trips and over 1 million miles. Loved by the Queen, she shed tears when it was decommissioned. This video tour shows you all around the ship and shares the history and some anecdotes about life on-board.

Her Majesty's Yacht Britannia is the former royal yacht of the British monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, in service from 1954 to 1997. She was the 83rd such vessel since the restoration of King Charles II in 1660. She is the second royal yacht to bear the name, the first being the famous racing cutter built for The Prince of Wales in 1893. She is now a five-star visitor attraction and evening events venue permanently berthed at Ocean Terminal, Leith, Edinburgh, Scotland. In 2014, The Royal Yacht Britannia was named the UK's no. 1 landmark by TripAdvisor. There was some controversy over the siting of the ship, with some arguing that she would be better moored on the Clyde, where she was built, than in Edinburgh, with which the yacht had few links. However, her positioning in Leith coincided wit...
The Royal Yacht Squadron celebrated its bicentenary in 2015, coinciding with the 46th edition of the Rolex Fastnet Race. Exclusive video of the bicentennial celebrations and interviews with the squadron’s Commodore, Christopher Sharples, among others, bring to life one of the biggest yachting events in this influential club’s 200 year history. The pioneering story of the RYS began in St James’s, London, in 1815. Today, from its base at Cowes Castle on the Isle of Wight, this prestigious club maintains the highest standards, safeguarding its exclusive traditions while working to develop yachting.
Senior Conservative Ministers have reportedly endorsed the prospect of a new royal yacht, just as the European Union has warned the UK that Brexit talks are deadlocked. Pro-Brexit politicians believe commissioning a £100m boat, ostensibly a “floating palace” for the Queen but also to be used to showcase the “best in Britain”, at the same time as the Royal Navy is facing severe cuts. source: https://goo.gl/yp9tz7
